THE MUSIC!
KYSHONA. Kyshona is an artist ignited by untold stories, and the capacity of those stories to thread connection in every community. With the background of a licensed music therapist, the curiosity of a writer, the resolve of an activist, and the voice of a singer, Kyshona is unrelenting in her pursuit for the healing power of song. Kyshona blends roots, rock, R&B, and folk with lyrical prowess. She is both a sought after collaborative vocalist working with artists like Margo Price whom she accompanied on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Adia Victoria who features Kyshona, Price and Jason Isbell in her single “You Was Born to Die”, and a burgeoning performer in her own right whose 2020 release Listen, was voted Best Protest Album of 2020 by Nashville Scene. Kyshona’s non-profit organization Your Song offers songwriting programs for youth empowerment programs, detention, re-entry, recovery, mental health, and veterans centers and organizations.

THE ART!
JAIMA. Brooklyn based artist, Jaima, moved to New York in 2016 to pursue the dream of being a full time artist. While working at artists’ markets, he would create paintings to show his process and noticed that these were the pieces that people loved the most. His style revolves around drawing a specific object, and then using the negative space to connect and interweave patterns. By connecting various simpler motifs to make a more complex piece, his goal is to make art that people can revisit many times and find something new and uplifting.
